SMASHBOX BRUSHES and THE MAKEUPDROP™ | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

There are so many brushes out there, so many sponges, so many ideas of how to apply makeup out there, smashbox and the makeup drop has made it so easy.Hi guys, so I used to dislike Smashbox a lot after we had a thriving relationship – well it’s been repaired and since them launching within Canada they started a Canadian PR team so I’m more then aware some of my product talk will not be new items but, well, it’s kind of new to me. Also the brand who created the viral silicone makeup sponge, The MakeupDrop™, reached out to me and challenged me to use the new Hybrid Blender and nothing else for two weeks. I took that challenge.

So first off I am going to talk about The MakeupDrop™ because it really is a massive game changer for makeup application, a lot of people who have tried the Silicone Blender loved it but still felt it needed a final touch to help melt and blend into the skin a little bit better and the brand listened and created the Hybrid Blender with a flat silicone drop for you to add foundation on and pat onto the skin then there is a latex-free blending sponge connected like a BeautyBlender but truthfully better, flip it over and blend out anything – it’s beyond perfect for concealer, applying the concealer to the tip of the silicone pad tap and dabbing it where it’s needed then, boom, flip it and lightly melt it into the skin.

➡️ Truthfully I never really got into the BeautyBlender hype, but this sponge actually leaves your skin so flawless and for only $20.00US it’s an amazing steal, I love the silicone drop because it doesn’t waste product at all, you use less, and less of your expensive products, I know that BeautyBlender drinks up the product as much as it drinks up the water – I do own a lot of BeautyBlender but 99% of them are still boxed or just laying around from that giant egg I got when BeautyBlender came out with Bounce foundation. I’ve always been a brush type of dude, and that’s why when I saw the semi-new Smashbox brushes I was so incredibly surprised and taken back at the level of actual craftsmanship and artistry to come out with a brush collection that you would really only need within your kit or for your home makeup application.

One brush that is an absolute must have is their multitasking detailing brush which is amazing for so, so many things especially covering imperfections, dark spots, and all of the face issues we might come across, because if you use a regular concealer brush you are then blending out so much concealer but this brush picks up the absolute perfect amount and is so unique ➡️ The angled powder brush is an absolute must, the design of this brush is something that any and I mean any makeup wearer wants and thinks about but after that thought it just poof is gone until the next time – no-guesswork grips show where to hold for sheer to full coverage on some of the complexion brushes which is absouloutly so smart of Smashbox to do, it’s also slanted so you can pack powder where you need to and there do a little zip across the face to actually look, airbrushed.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ High-tech synthetic fibers (you would swear that they were real hair, seeing is believing) for durability and control and it’s Smashbox so its all cruelty-free.

The blending shadow brush is the perfect brush for the classic smoky eye, at the barrel it’s so slim and rounded perfectly and puffs up into the perfect amount of hairs and density for blending, even smoking out the bottom lash line. This dome-shaped brush applies sheer shadow layers that can be built up so easily, diffuses any shadow especially deep shades and creates seamless shade transitions for a soft eye look. You can also use the brush to blend out overly applied eyeshadow. Every brush has high-tech synthetic fibers retain shape and bounce back after washing.

Right now Smashbox is offering almost their full brush line in a brush vault with a tub holder which is such an amazing offer, you get 15 brushes.

CHEEK ➡️ Angled Powder Brush • Buildable Cheek Brush • Fan Brush • Precise Highlighting Brush EYE ➡️ Arched Liner Brush • Contour Shadow Brush • Full Coverage Shadow Brush • Lash & Brow Lifter Brush • Precise Brow & Liner Brush • Precise Smudge Brush FACE ➡️ Blurring Concealer Brush • Buildable Concealer Brush • Buildable Foundation Brush • Multitasking Detail Brush LIP ➡️ Lip brush

It is only $220.00CAN but it has a full value of $500.00CAN and you can take a look at here at Smashbox.com where I believe it is exclusive. It’s the most unbelievable deal and I cannot say it enough – these brushes are top quality and worth every penny.

MY MAKEUP KIT HACKS | FACE POWDERS AND CONTOUR | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi boys and girls – so I am just going to address a couple things right now, I had a couple items from Tarte that I was going to talk about truthfully I really, really can’t stand that company. Yes I am on a PR list, but it will be my choice to pull out because I just can’t handle the amount of pointless and same items they send out, Morphe x James Charles, Tarte REMIX. Morphe Fluidity, Tarte Shape Tape powders and the list just goes on and on. I find Tarte to be very rude, and there is a couple of them I know personally, like Lauren and Hailey – They will be rude to you and make you feel bad for no reason at all, Tarte is not be all end all in fact Tarte products are conceived and produced so fast that they are just garbage. They print logos they think we want to see, yet the company is anything but ‘kind’ I don’t need eyes to see Tarte won’t last 2019 at the rate they are going. The price we pay just isn’t worth it, and if I have to sit, for almost an hour at a blank screen, trying to find nice words, I can’t do that, not for ‘free’ products and some apple watches from time to time. But this is not what this is about I’m going to show you a couple of new kit hacks to have a brand name items in your starter kit with multiple uses.

So there a lot of Contour Palettes out there, ABH, Morphe, heck any brand really but the one I’m going to talk about is from MAC and it’s just because of the idea tones for it to also be used as a face powder set from light, medium and dark. The blendability also is a major factor for what I choose MAC – the hard shell package is also ideal for travel. It’s for all sick types and a massive plus is it will not clog your pores.

The texture of these powders are nothing different from the standard MAC powder formula. While some shades are on the chalky side, all can be blended out on the skin and last all day and you will not notice anything.

The top row contains highlight powders meant to brighten or set certain areas on the face. These powders have more of a sheen or a matte finish but they also contain subtle shimmer. When buffed into the skin, it’s not a disco ball but it reflects the light in just a way that its flattering and beautiful. I think it’s not hard to see why I picked this one but if you do want all matte shades within you should go with the ABH palette but I am also adding in travel and pan side to get the best bang for your buck to my list.

MAC is also a MUA staple across the world, starting in a small kitchen in Toronto to the mega worldwide company, always doing it right. Any skin tone. Any Gender.

FENTY BEAUTY | DUPE ALART | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hey beautiful people – so I had something I wanted to write about today, but I decided that since it is on Allure’s list of Best In Beauty (ALLURE’S BEST IN BEAUTY 2018 LIST | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) in the luxury category, and the cost of it is well, the cost of some peoples rent sadly I figured that I would have to really make sure that I can see the results and know the tool to the last bolt, Just hours into 2019, Rihanna already has her sights set on disrupting another major makeup category. On January 11th Fenty Beauty released the brand’s first concealer in 50 shades — a landmark moment for the beauty industry. So how does it preform? Let’s find out.

The thing is, concealers on the whole aren’t available in wide shade ranges, and even when they are they can be a nightmare as far as colour matching goes – ‘almond’ and ‘cacao’ rarely correspond to your foundation and things can get altogether patchy and unconvincing. Enter the Fenty take on concealer – 50 shades, with names that align with each foundation to help you to pinpoint your ideal colour. As far as formula goes it delivers a matte, long-lasting finish, it’s crease and sweat resistant and it brightens as well as it conceals, which is nice for people who worry more so about darkness under the eye.

It was smart for Fenty to take the match approach when it came to foundation and concealer matching shades, it’s simple and we like simple. I don’t think I have to touch base on the foundation since it’s been out for a hot minute. Rhianna set the standard for brands to follow when it comes to releasing a foundation shade range  ➡️ Tarte take notes. When the foundation was released a lot of people weren’t really feeling it but a lot of people also were, I personally do not use foundation but I have used this on clients and also seen it preform on set and under hot studio lights and well as it dries down very quickly meaning you don’t have to overly powder it — we still keep adding more and more powder and I think that’s what caused the Pro Filt’r setting powder as it works with the foundation and I’ve reached out to some people who didn’t like the foundation the first time around but after using the new setting powder with it, agree that it’s lit.

09fenty
SIDE NOTE ➡️ I really like how Fenty Beauty took the time to see what people were saying was wrong with the brand and didn’t say well this is what you are doing wrong and instead came out with the products needed to fix it. Sadly not everyone can afford to buy the Fenty Face but that’s what Fenty is all about, for the best results you use all the products under the umbrella.

The new tools are nice also, I have always liked Fenty brushes but they semi remind me of Kat Von D beauty and her tools, but they are worth the money for sure. The cheek brush is exceptional when it comes to highlighting your face or body. I’m excited to see all of the brushes to come out because we all know that Fenty isn’t anywhere close to being done setting standards and making the beauty community shake. The only thing also is if you are very, very pale there isn’t really a perfect match for you from Fenty, I know right, 50 shades you are thinking but Fenty (Rhianna) did such a good job for in between and darker complexions, and very fair to fair shouldn’t have a problem finding a shade else where and I know brands know their demographic so really can we be that mad or upset with a brand who see’s that there demo is more fair to light but give some darker shades just in case – I guess what I’m thinking is why spend the money to create and bottle all of these shades just have them sit on a shelf or in inventory and not sell at all, you feel me?

DUPE ALERT ➡️ NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Contour Concealer. Available in 24 highly pigmented hues, this lightweight liquid won’t transfer and has three major complexion musts covered.

SELF SETTING | DUPE ALERT | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hi boys and girls I typically don’t write from the 24th till the 3rd for the obvious reasons, but since I have so much going on right now, and I don’t at the same time due to reasons in my past blog (GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY) I have been spending more time in a hospital more then I’d like, but that’s for a ‘LIFE 101’ post and if you’re new here, ‘LIFE 101’ is where I just talk about what’s going on in my life, things that are bothering me etc. trust me, there is a lot to say but the PR and beauty industry keeps sending out and making new products. A lot are wow and some are hard pass, I find for men in makeup that don’t really want the fully beat face – to woman who just want to be in the know.

MAKE UP FOR EVER came out with ➡️ Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer which is truly exactly what we are all asking for, since they came out with the tube HD concealer. I wondered what was keeping them from creating a concealer with a applicator or doe foot, I personally think that a doe foot is a better way to keep bacteria and all that bad stuff off your face. This creamy concealer has medium, buildable coverage, a natural finish, and second-skin feel in a self-setting formula with up to 12-hour, crease-free wear which can be a lot of claims for a concealer but over the years I have found that, MUFE doesn’t print without back up and a lot of testing. You can buy it here for $35.00CAD for 0.17 oz/ 5 ml.
29MUFEUHD
Right off the PR card about the products ➡️ MAKE UP FOR EVER’s iconic Ultra HD technology for flawless, invisible coverage is now available in concealer form. Coated pigments diminish the appearance of dark circles, fine lines, and imperfections, and immediately set. The smoothing, hydrating, creamy liquid captures and diffuses light so that skin that appears bright, flawless, and fresh all day.

DUPE ALERT ➡️ NYX HD CONCEALER WAND buy it here for $6.00 also click the link to check out the product and the product facts! Save your coins if you need to, there is almost always a dupe out there and I will now be featuring DUPE ALERT.
29nyx044_nyx_concealerwand_1560x1960-b85nr
A lot of people have the theory that most moden foundations and concealers are all self-setting but that is absouloutly not the case, if it doesn’t say it’s self-setting then you have to set it with a powder and it’s not for the look of powdered skin but for the longevity of the makeup and to make sure that your face doesn’t melt off a hour after you’re done, we create body heat which is not a friend to cream makeup or concealers.

Another really, really great product that is not new per say, but just got a package change is from HOURGLASS which is a little more expensive but if you have oily skin to acne prone skin this would be a game changer for you, hell it works for any skin type, it’s all in the way that you use the product and yes if you didn’t guess it I am talking about Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation.

29immaculate-liquid-powder-foundation-relaunc29h
This foundation has some amazing ingredients which I will highlight and what that ingredient does for skin ➡️ Advanced Cashmere Kaolinite Clay:
Works continuously throughout the day to control oil, while drawing out impurities to keep skin clear ➡️ Phytostem Edelweiss: Provides antioxidants, smooth’s the look of skin, nourishes the complexion, and protects from free radicals ➡️ Oxygenating Solvents: Deliver oxygen to the skin to help clear pores. All ingredients within are vegan also.

You’re able to buy it here for $70.00CAD and you would get 1 oz/ 30 ml which is about the size of a standard luxury foundation.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ drawback of this foundation is that it can only be used with people who don’t tend to have dry patches. If this foundation is applied over dry spots, they will look even worse than they already do. It will make them very noticeable. If you get dry spots and still want to try this foundation, make sure to use a heavy moisturizer before bed to prevent dry patches. The only other thing about this foundation that could be bothersome to some people is that it is very waterproof. Many people’s face washing routine is only using face wash and then rinsing, which doesn’t work with this foundation. Even when primer is worn with this foundation, I find that because it adheres so well to the skin, washing it off can be a little bit difficult.

Don’t forget about my iPhone XR giveaway and the colourpop Christmas PR collection (THIS IS NOT A DREAM | MAKEUPANDTHECITY) and thanks for making it too the end! I hope you have a safe and fun NYE.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS |TARTEIST™ PRO REMIX VAULT AND COLLECTION | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

xmas
Happy Holidays guys, from my family to yours,
it’s Christmas eve right now, sadly if you read the start to yesterdays post (GREEK GODDESS COLLECTON | LUNAR BEAUTY MAKEUPANDTHECITY) you’d know why this Christmas well, sucks, but I am going to try to make the best of it as I can – but I don’t want to not wish everyone around the world, celebrating or not a happy and safe holiday season with your family, and remember it doesn’t have to be blood, sometimes we make our own family and that’s completely alright! I’m sitting next to a cracking fire at 5:07am with the Christmas tree lit up, surrounded with all these products and it feels comfortable – sometimes it’s nice to put in headphones and just write.

To be completely honest with you, I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t see Tarte or open a new Tarte package for a good year, I do like Tarte but they are a trend company and no really the type to start just follow what they think and before it even makes it they have in production five hundred products incorporating a smile for example, Tarte factory employees must be so well paid, and what warehouse in China, Canada or USA? good, uh, question. Tarte just doesn’t stop and some could see this as a good thing but in the beauty industry, we all need a break unless your company is creating new ideas, not just creating for the sake of numbers. Also what’s with that dude with blonde hair now in all of their how to videos, what does he do for Tarte?

pro
Alright so the new Tarteist™ PRO REMIX vault is as they always do for sale on the website and maybe in Sephora but it’s been a long time since I have had to go into Sephora but I do have to go there today actually so perfect, I will check and update if they do. I will say, the one that I got in the mail have all the Tarteist™ PRO palettes and also a brush with the splatter handle, and three shade that are closest to my tone with vibrant color caps, which I wasn’t able to see for sale but the other items are, The brush is alright, nothing special, at this point we all know what a Tarte buffing brush is like they did a feature re-launch of the Clay Full Coverage Foundation and I don’t get what that has to do with a remix, but that was what I am talking about with the company, anything to make extra or make the consumer think they need more crap.

Tarteist™ PRO REMIX ➡️ When this palette came out it was the same time Morphe x James Charles came out so I feel like the Tarte team sat down and was like crap, what can we quickly do to do a pop of color in a cool way that’s fresh, It was smart of Tarte because Tarteist™ PRO Palette was actually not well received by makeup artists who actually do to grind. Even influencers found it to be extremely underrate for the price – so a remake of this palette could potentially be a smart move on Tarte’s end. Sold for $65.00 for 0.70 oz. and you can buy it and everything else mentioned in this post here. I’d consider it more of a complementary palette than a typical standalone palette but that really depends on your need for mattes in a look which now a days are pretty high with that said, I do want to mention that the bio about this palette is almost a toned down version of Morphe x James Charles all about unleashing your artist and going outside of your comfort zone some might say, This Remix palette is for those who love metallic shades – it’s full of shimmer and color with three matte shades and the rest pretty much chocked full of shimmer.

prooo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Within the Remix palette you will get 20 shades, pricing is mentioned above and where to buy, there was a lot a lot of fall out when applying the shades and there was as much with the OG Pro Palette, understandingly that more fall out is typical with shimmer and metallic shades. Most makeup loves will have similar shades within already owned palettes.

proooooo
Tarteist™ PRO glow & blush ➡️ 
This is actually a winner in my eyes, The OG Pro Glow was well loved in my kit, I think that Tarte creates some of the best blushes on the market but this doesn’t even come close to the blush book that they have called blush 101 which came out for the back to school products – it was also good marketing to do a refresh on both of the PRO Palettes and not just the Eyeshadow Palette because other brands were launching a lot of great palettes. I do like that they decided to include in one bronzer that is the perfect universal shade for a bronzer, I do wish it was a little lighter for more fair skin but it really is a nice shade. The pan size is also almost mega sizes which is really nice because you will find them lasting you for quite some time!

prooooo
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Do make sure that you always check the little container with the lid off to see how long a product is considered good for etc. 24m

TOP FIVE PRODUCTS I USE DAILY | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

Hey guys – so much drama going on for me right now and I just really, do not understand why, the only difference between drama before and drama now is I have my very own big boy lawyer that I like to use. I really do understand that it happens, but I’m in a fight with one company over “copywriting” on clothing and thinking I took the idea when really, I bought them off wish, then one of my best friends purposely trying to get my in trouble with a company and brand that she had drama with, you just don’t use someone else name, its not fair, and it makes you look bad when everyone finds out. So my holidays so far have been…peachy.

I used to be that type who would wear, foundation, concealer, powder, setting powder and it would look good, and I have nothing against men who do all the steps but I found focusing on my skin, I’m not a teenage anymore and focusing on the skin care aspect did a lot better, I don’t have large pores, acne, or that dark of dark circles so it came down to it one day I was like what are you trying to hind when there isn’t anything almost like it is makeup abuse to do that and such a waste!

So lets get to the first thing that I use in the morning ➡️ MDNA SKIN’s The Face Wash and wow it makes your skin feel so amazing and fresh after one, and I mean one use the morning after you look so good, and I know its because of this cleanser (and line) it cost ➡️ $70.00CAD for 4 fl oz / 120ml and you can buy it from Barneys NYC by clicking here! When I say, this face wash is like nothing, nothing I have ever experienced it’s true, and trust me, I have tried so many products with so many claims to do this, or do that. MDNA SKIN’s The Face Wash is so gentle yet powerful brightening facial cleanser and makeup remover that quenches skin as it clarifies. Infused with alpha hydroxy acids and active botanicals, this cleanser purifies and helps visibly balance the skin while washing away dirt, debris, and all types of makeup.

mdna
SIDE NOTE ➡️ Malic acid: rejuvenating and brightening fruit acid that helps improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Turmeric: prized for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to boost skin’s glow. Also there is a light scent which is mint, rosemary, geranium, and lime.

➡️ next is from MDNA SKIN also and its the MDNA SKIN’s The Serum and wow if you haven’t tried this line I really, really urge you to go and get a sample because it’s just that good, its hard to get into the price tag but these two I would say are staples from the line and I have, chrome mask, magnetic remover tool, eye serum and I do use them but I’ve found if you apply The Serum under the eyes and apply something on top its like you’re getting the same types of results, MDNA SKIN’s The Serum costs $345.17 for 1.7 fl oz / 50ml. and you can buy it here which again is a direct link to Barneys. MDNA SKIN’s The Serum is a breakthrough hydrating, plumping, and brightening treatment to help provide the look of firmer and more nourished skin. Enriched with powerful moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients, this formula helps to dramatically diminish the appearance of dullness, fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Three forms of hyaluronic acid : powerful hydrators that can attract and retain up to 1,000 times their molecular weight in water. Vegan squalene: locks in essential moisture and promote a soft, supple texture. Resveratrol: antioxidant that protects skin’s surface. Licorice: natural skin brightener that helps diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation from scarring and sun exposure. You can also check out my post about MDNA SKIN care ➡️MDNA SKIN | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

My next product of items I use daily is NARS soft matte concealer, I absouloutly love this little pot and I always have, but it is just now the way that I am using it that is right for me! This high performance, full coverage concealer instantly color corrects dark circles, redness, discoloration, and blemishes with a natural – looking, soft-matte finish. The oil-free formula builds weightlessly, blends seamlessly and last effortlessly while delivering long term skincare benefits. Light diffusing particles produce a soft-focus effect, smoothing skin and blurring imperfections. And after I get out of the shower before I blow dry my hair and get cute for the day, also after applying my skin care and normal routine, I warm up the product with my index fingers and swipe it under both eyes, around the nose, small bit on the chin and forehead and buff it into the skin using a buffing brush. Them my skin looks perfect, go on and blow dry my hair and let the my oils work with skin and then I use my fourth product which is a powder foundation a couple shades darker so that it gives me a sun kissed glow! NARS concealer is $40.00CAD for 0.21Oz or 6.2g from Sephora, NARS, or Ulta Beauty.
img_0322
As mentioned I used a powder foundation from SMASHBOX halo powder, I have always used it and always liked it, it leaves your skin with an amazing even glow that people will be commenting at, like I said to cut out useless steps I went a couple shades darker so that I can blend a little harder to get that bronzed look, keeping in mind I am pale, and it is winter! Halo Hydrating Powder Foundation is a foundation-setting powder hybrid that combines the payoff of a pressed powder with the luminous and breathable finish of a loose powder. The built-in powderizer allows you to freshly grind the perfect amount for a single application every time without fear of mess or over-powdering which I absouloutly love! The weightless formula is infused with Mineral Boost Complex, a blend of amino acids, peptides and minerals that work like a filter for skin, leaving you with an instantly corrected complexion and youthful glow. SMASHBOX halo hydrating perfecting powder is $80.00CAD for 0.3 ounces which is a lot of product and does makeup for the harsh price tag for a powder if you look at it that way only its so much more!

FIVE5BONUS SIDE NOTE ➡️ I also always will keep the Ilia Radiant Translucent Powder SPF 20 in the shade and only shade Moondance it wonderful to keep with me during the day to touch up and also for the SPF baby, SPF doesn’t last forever so its always good to touch it up! I have had this as my little secret weapon for so long before it’s small but has a full buffing / blending brush pop out, also gives you little instructions on the side, for example closed, open, buff so you know the powder has made its way to the end of the bristles. With a blend of organic powders and healing oils, our talc-free SPF 20 translucent powder formula nourishes and softens skin, while taking down shine thanks to a skin-texture, translucent finish. Formulated with aloe leaf extract to keep skin feeling cared for, and passion fruit and rosemary oil to soothe and fight inflammation. Leaves skin’s surface shine-free, but enough of a lit-from-within luminosity to leave it looking healthy and glowing and hey also easy too apply SPF throughout the day while on-the-go.

ALSO when it runs out of powder, the plastic holder does come out so you can add any milled powder if choice you want but they also do sell the powder by its self so you can add up from there!

$47.00CAD for 0.07oz / 2.3g link to buy is above!

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS SEASON FOUR PREDICTIONS | MAKEUPANDTHECITY

The time has come, hey kitty girl I don’t know if you have been under a rock for a little or are just not a fan of the show Rupaul’s Drag Race but they just released the first 15 minutes of episode 1 and it looks absouloutly amazing! I do have to say and maybe like many but All Stars is my favourite seasons because I love seeing the queens come back and seeing how much they have changed and just really go for the crown. The line up of queens this season is such a good one, for our consideration we have ➡️ Monét X Change ➡️ Latrice Royale ➡️ Trinity Taylor ➡️ Farrah Moan. Valentina ➡️ Monique Heart ➡️ Jasmine Masters ➡️ Naomi Smalls ➡️ Gia Gunn and Manila.

Which to me seem like a really good line up, it was just to much of a tease for me I mean at the end when Latrice and Manila but I am fascinated to find out how Manila and Latrice’s relationship has changed since their disastrous turn on All Stars 1.

THEQUEENSAll Stars fourth season premiere comes just one week after Rupaul’s Drag Race Holi-slay Spectacular, airing Friday, Dec. 7 at 8/7c. The festive face-off will reunite Eureka O’Hara, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique and Trixie Mattel as they compete for the title of Drag Race’s first-ever Christmas Queen. They’ll lip sync for their lives to tunes off Rupaul’s holiday albums Slay Belles and Christmas Party. Which was a cute mini episode to watch the best part and spoiler ahead ➡️ when Michelle and Ru both lip sync for their lives and the dancer add in is, maybe a little to funny, or sad. Hard to say.

giphy-30
Also how do you feel about the trans element within drag? I mean no real woman dresses and wears makeup like a drag queen so the drag element is still there, it’s still within gay culture – also do you guys remember Ru making a transphobic comment last year? Some say that’s why Gia Gunn is even back, as sort of an apology?

I will keep updating this as we go! Don’t forget as a fan you are more involved then ever this season we have the chance to keep a queen or save a queen that should be, interesting.
